Rachel F Freeman
Head of Operations, Creative Virtual Ltd
Rachel Freeman has been in and out of the Natural Language Processing field since 2000 and started building virtual assistants in NYC. She joined Creative Virtual in 2005 as a Knowledgebase Engineer, and then whilst also writing for travel guidebooks, she acted as a consultant and Project Manager for the company. Rachel took the position of Head of Operations in June 2010. She received her BA in English Literature from Skidmore College. Based on her time in the Hebrides whilst studying for her MLitt degree in Ethnography and Geography (University of Edinburgh), Rachel believes she may be the only native New Yorker who knows how to shear sheep with manual sheers and build a cruach (peat stack)! She spends her spare time with family and friends or singing bass with the Sweet Adeline’s women’s barbershop UK Gold Medal Champions Forth Valley Chorus.
